Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is now featured in a new mural on Ocean Front Walk in Venice Beach, Calif., thanks to the artistic stylings of Bicicleta Sem Freio.

And the checkbook of Lorenzo Fertitta, who along with promotion president Dana White commissioned the piece, despite the fact that one already exists nearby.

The artists gush to Rolling Stone (via MMA Junkie):

"She is almost like a comics hero. We are fans of Ronda. Her last fight was in Rio against a Brazilian fighter, and despite that, everyone loves her in Brazil. What is really fascinating about Ronda, besides being an undefeated fighter and also being very secure of her femininity, is that she looks real and authentic. She looks like a really cool girl. We would love if she could learn us a few fighting tricks!"

Los Angeles Daily News has a nice photo gallery here.

"Rowdy" will put her bantamweight title on the line against unbeaten striking specialist Holly Holm at the upcoming UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Sat., Nov. 14, 2015, inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
